Known as the "Chablis of the South", the wines of Picpoul de Pinet are crisp, bright and refreshing. The name Picpoul, literally translates as "Lip Stinger", referring to the grape's naturally bright acidity. A range of hills protect the appellation of Picpoul de Pinet from the North Western winds, while the coastal winds from the Mediterranean temper the summer heat. Floral and tropical fruit notes on the nose. On the palate this crisp, dry white has plenty of stone fruit, melon, and zesty notes. The soft citrus fruit is tempered with an intense minerality giving a long, refreshing finish. Picpoul de Pinet is a classic match for oysters, mussels and seafood dishes.

    I asked for a selection box with a given budget and Charles delivered a wonderful case of wine with both some familiar varieties and some new to us. Very pleased. Very quick delivery within 24 hours and just before the weekend!
